Brown Sugar Goodness

I know this is a little late for Valentine baking, but these are seriously the best sugar cookies ever!  It started with a Pinterest recipe that I had to modify because I didn’t have all the ingredients. I took them to our small group this week and got so many happy mouths raving that I decided to share the wealth.  So this is my version, including the “brown sugar instead of white” change.


Brown Sugar Cookies


1 C Butter (room temperature)

3/4 C Vegetable Oil

1 1/4 C Brown Sugar

3/4 C Powdered Sugar

2 T Water

2 Eggs

2 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Salt

5 1/2 C Flour

Sour Cream Frosting

1/2 cup room temperature butter

3/4 C Sour Cream

A 1 lb Package of Powdered Sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

Red Food Coloring

The great thing about these cookies is that, unlike regular sugar cookies, you don’t need to roll them out.  Just roll dough into balls and put on cookie sheet.  Then dip the bottom of a drinking glass in sugar and flatten the ball down.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (don’t over bake!).

Let cool and then refrigerate cookies.

Slather with the creamy, dreamy frosting and enjoy!
